    iFollow and the way it is set has been crap since it started several years ago. I complained to Ifollow, the football league, and to Pot Vale and heard nothing. The sad result is that I bought a fire stick for 30 quid and pick and choose Vale games which now amounts to 3 a season at best. Totally lost interest. Hence I post here once a month or so compared to 20 years ago. I don't even buy the shirts now due to inconsistent chopping and changing year in year out. Sad times.


    I've had a season ticket since it started and the only real problems I've had have been payment wise when my card has expired etc etc. I have found it brilliant and it has enabled me to see every game, home and away, and I'm not sure I would have been able to do that in the UK! It has come a long way since that first season with no commentary......and I hope it continues indefinitely.

    I don't understand why UK based fans can't buy a ticket for away games if the money goes to the Vale....doubtless there must be some contractual/money issues somewhere along the line?

  2. We were......"sloppy". Poor first touches, one touch too many, poor turn whatever and they were all over us. I know it's early days and I certainly expect us to have a good season but at the mo we are definitely disjointed and DC has to sort it out. We are solid, which is a good base to start with, but the midfield has to link with the forwards and we have to start making chances...it all looks a bit hit and hope at the moment.

    Win at Stevenage now on Satdee....no bother!

  3. Thought it was a good game of football. Both teams will be up there in the end I think. We are obviously still gelling and getting to know systems and each other but I thought we looked like a team with potential. Thought Jones was excellent and Pett a little Duracell Bunny. Legge was dominant and Smiffy enjoyed his rumble with their CF I think.

    As everyone has said before, I too, am worried about the sharp end.....where are the goals coming from? Hopefully once it clicks they will start to arrive because Wilson looks class but is he up for the nitty gritty of Div 2? Thought Proctor has looked good when he's come on. Wozza......well can you say??? Covolan is going to be "entertaining" shall we say.......I missed the header because iFollow have decided they have a new toy and are constantly doing replays whilst the game is going on.....cannot lie, I swore at the screen a few times. Hopefully a good win Tuesday night as the journey progresses.....UTV

  4. RIP Ernie......I follow his daughter on Twitter and he has been struggling a while with dementia.

    I loved him and Newt up front....it was that period when you really felt the opposition defence was frightened to death of our forwards.

    Another sad loss of an ex Valiant.

    Apologies for the delay Rob......I have an ongoing problem with PayPal......but have managed to pay as a guest! I'll seriously go along with the majority wishes although Mad Jack the keeper is a good bet!

    Aah wished I'd read your last post before paying....sorry!

    Promoted in 69/70 in all white.

    Oh yes...that was a proper kit....especially when it was covered in reddish/brown sludge off the pitch.....😂😂.....usually all over Jess James's kit......Johnny Green was spotless!

  7. Just an awesome bloke....I commented on his twitter post about joining Exeter, wishing him well and thanking him for his time at Vale. The bloke sent me a personal message back to thank me and say it was an offer he couldn't refuse and he hoped me and my family were all well!!!

    Not something I expected but just a mark of the man. Think the decision to let go was correct but I'm a little surprised he wasn't offered something as the keeper coach here. Mind you, as we all know, we know nowt about what happens behind closed doors and at long last we've got them at VP.

    I met John Connaughton years later and he said although he played nigh on 200 games for Vale, he’s always remembered for letting a grubber through his legs at home to Walsall. 🙄

    Oh yes....I'm 63 and still get occasional flashbacks to that.......the stunned silence for about 3 seconds before the outpouring of grief and anger still lingers! Sad int it really.....should know better.

    I remember bloody Alan Boswell 😂😂😂😂,although he came later.

    Ah, Good old Eve Boswell......they called him Cinderella cos he kept missing the ball! He was good comedy value at times.....unfortunately he was our keeper...😂  gave me bloody nightmares every time he came for a cross, usually ones he shouldn't have. Those he should have come for he stayed where he was...

    Brilliant news! This is the best way we could have chosen to start off our new recruitment - almost as if it had been planned, with lots of equally good signings to follow. Hopefully the first signs of great things to come.

    Well done DF, DC and, above all, our fantastic owners for making this happen.

    Optimism at last - this is going to take some getting used to!



    it is Vale don't forget Yewth!
